    They are the same oats. Just chopped instead of rolled.

    About the only difference between steel-cut and rolled oats is steel-cut oats have a lower glycemic index compared to rolled oats.

    You can get whole hulled oats too. They take longer to cook of course. Whole reason people roll, crimp, cut oats is to make them cook faster. I suggest pressure cooker if you are going to do whole hulled oats. Or let them soak overnight.

    I love steel cut oats. They take longer to cook than rolled oats but have a nuttier flavour that makes it worthwhile. Sometimes I added walnut pieces or sliced almonds to the cooked oats for extra flavour.

    I know it sounds weird, but if you are cooking oatmeal (the thick rolled oats the best), cook them with handful of dehydrated burdock root. The flavors really compliment each other. Makes oatmeal edible without sugar, just want bit salt and maybe some olive oil or butter.

    I have diabetes so have to avoid grain. Oatmeal, even the thicker kinds really shoots up my blood sugar fast. But can share what I have learned over the years.
